Robin Corak, CEO of the Multi-Service Center, has received Advancing Leadership’s 2017 Bob Wroblewski Servant Leader Award.
The award was presented during the Evening with the Stars dinner and auction fundraiser Oct. 7 at the Federal Way Community Center. Each year, Advancing Leadership gives the award to a program graduate for “demonstrating outstanding application of their AL training in building a better community.”
The award was named after Bob Wroblewski, a founding member of Advancing Leadership and its longest serving board member whose contributions have had a lasting impact on Federal Way. Past winners include Rose Ehl (2012), Lori Santamaria (2013), Janice Siebenaler (2014), Andy Hwang (2015) and Jon McIntosh (2016).
Corak has held management positions with Multi-Service Center since 2005, and was named CEO in 2012. Multi-Service Center serves about 47,000 people each year through fundraisers as well as transitional and low-income housing in South King County and parts of Pierce County. The center operates programs and resources in employment, education, food, clothing and energy assistance. Last year, the center opened the William J. Wood Veterans House.
